The Wisconsin Idea in Action

Elder Tree

Under a grant from the Agency for Healthcare Policy and Research, David Gustafson and his associates are partnering with the Aging and Disability Resource Centers in Milwaukee, Waukesha and Richland counties to develop and disseminate a website (called Elder Tree) to help older adults reduce falls, medication errors, loneliness and isolation and automobile accidents. Elder Tree is also designed to reduce family caregiver burden. Elder Tree is being tested in randomized trial of 650 elders in those three counties. It will also be disseminated to additional Wisconsin counties, with a goal of reaching an additional 20 counties by June 2016.
